Funny Pages18

Directed by Owen Kline | USA | 2022 | Starring Daniel Zolghadri, Matthew Maher, Miles Emanuel, Maria Dizzia, Josh Pais

Encouraged by his eccentric teacher, teenager Robert moves out of his parent’s home and drops out of college to pursue his dream of becoming a comic book illustrator. While living in a filthy New York basement, he meets a strange and volatile former cartoonist and approaches him to be his mentor. Surreal humour, sweat and squalor permeate this hilariously twisted coming-of-age story, produced by filmmakers Benny and Josh Safdie (Uncut Gems, Good Time).

Reviews

‘This is a genuinely bizarre, startling, freewheelingly lo-fi and funny indie picture with the refreshing bad-taste impact of Todd Solondz or Robert Crumb.’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘A coming-of-age tale that finds the sublime in the grotesque, and the profound in an absurd search for meaning in the basement apartments and comic book shops of Trenton, New Jersey.’
★★★★
Katie Walsh, The Wrap

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
